If you have registered and cannot see the technical indicators on each stock of my Watch List below, make sure you are logged in and refresh your browser.

As an example of the success that my book teaches, in a 7 year time frame from January 3, 2006 to December 31, 2012, Decker Corporation increased 304.7% if you would have implemented a pure buy-and-hold strategy. If you would implemented the strategy that I explain in my book, The Confident Investor, you would have seen a 371.2% return on your investment. This is a 21.8% increase on the profit percentage.

Can your investment system beat the market by that much?

Many value investors have been sitting on the sidelines watching Amazon's [[AMZN]] stock continue to rise. They remain on the sidelines because they perceive Amazon as significantly overvalued in terms of P/E ratio, which factors in earnings. These value investors perceive Amazon's stock as irrationally inflated. However, the reality is that Amazon has been expanding significantly over the years, sacrificing profits for a wide-scale distribution network. This has kept earnings suppressed, thus inflating the P/E ratio which the value investors cite as the evidence for overvaluation. While these value investors may see Amazon investors as drunk at the punchbowl, I think they are actually quite sober.

Amazon's stock price increased at a rate that exceeded the rate of revenue growth over the past 10 years. While revenue increased about 819% over the past 10 years based on 2007 revenue of $14.8 billion and 2016 revenue of $136 billion, the stock increased by over 2,000% from $38 to $845.

I'm not expecting the pace of the stock growth to exceed the pace of revenue growth going forward. The reason for this is due to Amazon's expanded P/E multiple. Amazon's trailing 12-month P/E multiple was below 100 at about 86 in 2007. The current trailing P/E multiple is 172. With a much higher P/E multiple, I expect Amazon's stock to grow below the pace of revenue growth, but still at an above average rate.

One of the biggest challenges in investing in the stock market is picking the best stocks. In my book, "The Confident Investor" I teach my readers how to pick Good Companies. This page is designed to show the raw performance of these companies. It is not designed to show my personal portfolio, which may or may not exceed the performance stated here. Since I use the trading system described in my book, you can assume that I beat the performance recorded here.

I have created three tables below. The first table is the general market - NASDAQ and S&P500. Every investor should try to beat the average of these two indexes. In this report, my larger Watch List beats this metric easily.

I must caution you, I do not actually propose that you "buy and hold" any given stock, but rather you should "buy to hold" the stock. My investing technique teaches you to efficiently move your money to the stocks that are currently increasing in value the most. I use my Watch List for this work, these are Good Companies that I wait for great buying opportunities. This strategy is well described in my book, "The Confident Investor" and tends to be a very safe strategy in bear markets while typically still providing above market returns in a bull or flat market.

My Short Term Watch List are 15 companies that are hot right now. I select this list every quarter. I evenly divide a portion of my portfolio among these 15 companies. The next quarter, I add or delete companies as necessary and then re-balance the portfolio. This tends to be a more risky strategy because I don't bail out on bad stock movement (at least until the end of the quarter). In a bull market or a flat market, these very well-run and high-performing companies tend to beat the general market by a significant margin.
